[applause] >> no one will take it away. no matter what. >> well, mr. president, why are seven million people about to lose theirs? hey, doc, seven million and counting, right? >> it's because the congressional budget office said this week that the 3.5 million they thought were going to leave employer-based insurance over the next decade is actually seven million. you know what? it's probably a lot more than that for many residential. first of all, employers can't afford the plan, they can't afford the idea to cover families. the estimate out of the irs is it will be approximately $20,000 per person to cover a family of five. people can't afford that. also, obama care limits the amount you're allowed to pay into the plan, so employers are going to say wait a minute. the e
questions over president obama's second term agenda. what it is exactly. his administration is clearly last week and this week focused on new gun control proposals, and major immigration reform legire saying the economy should be issue number one. take a look at these numbers. the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% last month. the nation's gdp shrank 1% during the fourth quarter, and u.s. debt is approaching 16.5 trillion dollars. we report, you decide. david hawkings here to help us out, editor of daily briefing. great to see you, david. good morning. >> nice to be with you, jamie. >> i want to start by can go you about the president's push this week. he'll make the tour on gun control. he talked last week about immigration. does he have those two right? >> does he have those two right in terms of boosting the economy? >> well, no. in his position and his proposals are those issues that we should take care of in the way he's proposing? >> well, that's not for me to decide, but it certainly seems as though at the moment, his immigration proposal is more in line with the public's thinking t
you the environmental impacts are massive. here is the thing. i think president obama will sign this thing over but think everything he does has some political capital attached it to. maybe it's some sort of cap and trade type of negotiations going on. >>. >> regardless of what happens. >> capital before the election before he denied having it go through. if he now says he is going pass it people will know people that were against it was for political gain. let's talk about something else on gun laws in the face of these major shootings. now in the state of washington, could it be in the law there, they have accidentally included a provision that would allow police to search the homes of assault rifle owners. apparently it does have a provision that says in order to possess a assault weapon on the effective date of this section, they are safely and secure the assault weapon. sheriff in the county can conducting an inspection to ensure compliance with the subsection. why is it interesting. the sheriff could come to the us on house and many people are concerned about that. why the
of the union address, president obama himself admitted that these cuts were a really bad idea. the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea, proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations. >> president obama made no mention of sequester in his saturday address, pointing out instead that progress has already been made in deficit reduction. >> over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion, which puts us more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances. now we need to finish the job. >> in the midst of all this, congress taking next week off for president's day. arthel? >> arthel: i'm chuckling. steve, thank you very much. >> you bet. >> new reports say that murders thankfully are now plummeting in the notorious mexican city of juarez. clearly that is good news from a safety standpoint. but it's causing for some a viesing problem for the real estate market on the u.s. side of the border. patrick manning has the detail
other point. she is tied to barack obama. it's very hard for a party to win the presidency three times in a row. when they win it the third time, it's usually almost a reelection of the previous president like with george h.w. bush. he was elected to ronald reagan's third term. if three years from now people aren't happy with barack obama, his management of the country, then no matter how popular she is, she's going to have a tough time. >> shepard: what you got cookin' for sunday, chris? >> guns. the gun debate. the dramatic hearing this week when gabi giffords came out, the congresswoman who had been shot and was so badly damaged, obviously. her husband, captain mark kelly, a former astronaut, and one of the new leaders in the fight for gun control. he's going to be on as is the head of the national rifle association, wayne la pierre, exclusive interviews with both. i know this is a fool's errand, but i'm going to try to talk about is there some common ground we can find here. i know you report it every day, you know, this one act of violence after another, someone going into a schoo
